Welcome to Lincoln Coin & Bullion
- Private & Secure - We realize folks often prefer to have a small footprint, to not broadcast their personal business. Locked-Door & Appointment-Only. We keep only minimal numismatics at our location, to eliminate folks browsing. We keep a decent stock, but any bullion you order gets shipped to us first for your examination. In addition to latest version of the Sigma Tester (with thru-testing), we also have Ultrasonic Testers, and an XRF.
- On-Hand, First-Rate Bullion Inventory - Walk-in/Walk-out, See-Before-You-Buy, and not everything-under-the-sun. Concise, quality selection of inventory, the bullion that effectively does its job. You are not shooting yourself in the foot with any of our items.
- Informing & Transparent - We tell you the things you would want to know, without needing to ask them. We let you know just how we get paid (our cost of business, including how we derive our pricing). Our web listings show quantities and premiums. Our photos are not photoshopped.
Our repeat customers are welcome to call in to reserve items and/or lock spot prices (which is considered a done-deal) on purchases/orders over the phone. New customers may do so as well with a 30% down payment.
If you are considering your first purchase of precious metals, we would be happy to set aside a good 45 to 60 minutes to discuss and review some items to know/consider on bullion, what generally is available, and the mechanics of a purchase. This can be done over the phone, and/or in person. Looking over and handling the bullion helps everything sink in. There is a lot to consider, and can be overwhelming on even where to start. We understand. We are here to guide you through the process. And it goes without saying, all business conducted with us is confidential.
Looking for a precious metals for a Self-Directed IRA? The vast majority of our bullion is intentionally IRA-eligible. We have seen a decent increase in interest in Self-Directed IRA's starting mid-2022, and we are happy to discuss how those work. Also, many of our clients have set up accounts with Jones Bank in Seward, NE (they have quite reasonable fees). There are many online options as well; we have worked with GoldStar Trust Co. and New Direction Trust Co.
We offer complimentary shipping (fully insured, adult-signature required) for purchases over $1k, otherwise shipping is a flat rate of $14. For orders we place with our suppliers (as opposed to what we have in-stock), we ask for minimum quantities of 50 oz. for Silver; & 2 oz. for Gold, Platinum, & Palladium.
Please note: Items marked Arriving Soon could go back to Available For Order prior to arrival, as our customers are always welcome to call and purchase items before they arrive. Looking for something specific? We are happy to take note and call you when we get those item(s) in. We are connected with ~12 wholesalers/suppliers, and can likely get you what you are looking for, so please ask.
For payments on purchases, we accept cash & check. We also accept debit and credit cards; however we add a 2% and 3.5% fee respectively for their use. We can also accept wire transfer.
Looking to sell bullion, while bullion pricing can be condition-dependant, we are happy to quote over the phone. When you sell, we can pay you cash, business check, or cashier's check, wire, or any combination thereof. We use Union Bank & Trust (UBT) for all our transactions.
We offer quotes & appraisal services for large collections/estates (both bullion and historic currency), for example, with no intent to sell - at $135/hour (first half-hour no fee). For customers who wish to have coin, currency, or bullion collections evaluated with the potential to sell, we offer line-itemed quotes (typically good for 1-2 weeks). If primarily bullion, typically we can quote numbers over the phone. We do occasionally travel off-site for appraisals of large collections, depending on location and availability.
Why don't we have cases and cases of coins for sale?? When we purchase historic currency/coin collections, we intentionally sell only a minimal amount at our location, to eliminate folks browsing. Common currency/coins we accumulate and sell in bulk. Non-bulk historic currency/numismatic items are mostly fed into a regional Nebraska auction we partner with (10+ year relationship - we generate lots, they run the auction).
